Three maritime teams (and one adopted team) have returned from an exciting Rallye de Charlevoix! The 11 challenging gravel and tarmac stages tested their driving and equipment with smiles, photos and lots of stories to show for it! As the dust settled our teams did well,
- Conrad/Paynter: 15th Overall, 7th in class
- Swann/Dine: 23rd Overall, 7th in class
- Spalinger/Nadeau: 24th Overall, 8th in class
- Whittman/Sleigh: DNF
Unfortunately the VW team of James Whittman and Daphne Sleigh retired due to a mechanical issue on Stage 4 and were unable to continue. Jonathan Conrad/Clarke Paynter and Daniel Spalinger/Ben Nadeau ran consistent stages all day while Malcolm Swann and Tim Dine suffered late day mechanical issues which resulted in a 9 minute late check in to Stage 10, significantly dropping them in the standings.

Congratulations to all the teams on their efforts and thanks for representing our region! You’ve done us proud!
